Windows 7: Sisoft Sandra 2011 Trial Not responding!

05 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64
It's not a user problem, it's a programmer problem.

I have also tried all the same steps to get Sandra working but no joy.

This is nothing the users have done. As I mentioned, I had Sandra working perfectly on my new SSD for a couple of days before allowing Windows 7 pro 64 bit to perform an update from Microsoft. The next time I tried Sandra it wouldn't load, and nothing I tried has gotten it working. I have the Windows firewall disabled and use the hardware firewall in my router so it has nothing to do with firewall settings.

Since there is other software I can use for the benching it's not a big deal for me, however seeing issues like this doesn't fill me with confidence regarding Sandra, and if I do ever decide to purchase software for testing/benchmarking systems this would weigh heavily against Sandra. Googling the issue confirms that it is a common occurrence with this software.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Try installing the full version of .net 4.0 from here;

Download .NET Framework

This worked for me and allowed three programs to start working again after the last Windows update killed them. Apparently it has to do with the 4.0 only being a client release, and not a full .net install.

I got a couple more updates after installing, but the programs still work properly, and Sandra works again. ( The other two were dnGrep, which nearly had me tearing my hair out!!! And a plugin for QTTabBar called QT Honey). There were no error messages, they simply stopped working. Then I discovered that the plugin required the FULL .net 4.0, and it worked, tried the others as well, because all this happened on the same day after a Windows update, and they all worked again.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I recently downloaded v2011.1.17.25 on a 32bit system and it's working fine. There's a newer update .30 but I think I'll decline.

Windows 7 Pro 64

I have already installed the full .NET framework because some other applications I use require it. However, I will give it a try just in case. I suppose something could have been overwritten or changed that I'm not aware of.

Edit: I have checked and I have the latest full version of .NET installed. However, just in case, I reinstalled .net again and it did not help Sandra at all.

It just freezes on the "Welcome to SiSoftware SANDRA" screen. If I click on it a few times I get an error message: "SiSoftware Sandra management console not responding" with the option to wait or end the program.

I have used the free version of Sandra over the years every time I needed to bench my computers. Up until now I have never had a problem. Funny how it broke on the last Windows update.

Windows 7 Pro 64.
